 In a statement by Ms Funmi Okeowo, Spokesperson for the movie project in Lagos, it was no surprise that the movie ’93 Days’ was selected again.

“It has been a great year for `93 Days’ which showed at international festivals such as the Chicago International Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.

“The movie recently received 13 nominations for the upcoming Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) taking place in March 2017,’’ she stated.
